Many thanks for that gogledd. Very thoughtful. I won't be able to make it myself as I'll be attending the York ex player's lunch in York but I know quite a few people who are making the trip.

I thoght they were all very very naughty boys for dropping the ball on purpose

Well said Deano. Like Fordy said, seen the best do it. Remember Billy Slater in the World Cup final in Brisbane? The lads had there worst half, yes half, of the season. Massive credit to them for coming out the second half and trying to pull it round and almost succeeding. A lot of teams would have gone through the motions second half and got well stuffed.

I suppose we get games like yesterday's now and again and it's disappointing when we do but fortunately there have been very few this season and at least we won this one and got the points. I agree with Shades [for a change!] and thought we'd have a decent game with that ref. in charge but how wrong can you be? Didn't he have the game when we played Featherstone Lions in the Cup earlier in the season? He cut out most of the niggling that night and clamped down on the spoiling tactics straight away but of course it resulted in quite a lot of penalties. I wonder if he got a boll.....g from Red Hall for it as he was definitely a different guy yesterday. The thing that puzzled me was the lack of use of the sin bin as surely that's what it's there for. Fordy said after the game nobody wants to see a hundred penalties in a game and he's right but he also said he could have put Oxford on a team warning early in the game and he's also right there and if he had done, unless the players are absolutely stupid, there wouldn't have been any need for many penalties.

 Just a word on the point Shades made about missing the tackling of Mallinder and Ed. Smith, I totally agree with him there as well. I must go and have a lie down! [Only kidding Shades.]

Very quiet on here - hoped we would be getting back to talking about on the field stuff now

Anybody else going Sunday?

I reckon the reason it is quiet on here Shades is well illustrated by the reply you received unfortunately.

 Keep up the good work Fordy and the lads!!

At long last, some good news, to me and a lot of others I'm sure. Hopefully the reason it took a long time might have been to try and ensure the club doesn't end up with a bad deal like Salford and a few more have.
